Jonathan Is Responsible For Ombatse Killing – Buhari

The All Progressives Congress, APC,  Presidential Campaign Council, in a statement by its Director of Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Monday, said President Goodluck Jonathan has failed to mobilize the security forces and to provide them with the required leadership to achieve their objective.
Jonathan's favouring of political exigency and his “gentleman image’ of being unable to hurt a fly, Shehu said, is reason he has failed to inspire the security agencies as required.
Shehu gave as a glaring example of Jonathan's government callousness and uncaring attitude towards the security agencies, the killing of one hundred policemen and operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) while on a mission to arrest the Spiritual Leader of the notorious Ombatse cult in Nasarawa State, last year. The statement said in serious countries, the government does not toy with the lives and well-being of its security men such that any act of violence visited on the personnel of the security establishment is tantamount to an assault on the nation as a whole.
Shehu mentioned as a case in point the action of the US and French authorities when terrorists attacked their Police personnel on duty.
These governments did not rest until the perpetrators were eliminated and investigation is still continuing to get to the root cause of the assault to prevent future occurrence.
In the case of the Ombatse killings of our security men, the administration of President Jonathan displayed incredible levity that shocked the nation and left a sour taste in the mouth of relations and families of the unfortunate slain security men.
The APC Presidential Campaign requests the President to reflect on the way he handled the massacre of the nation’s policemen and SSS operatives in May 2013 in Nasarawa State. This becomes necessary because President Jonathan has been telling the country during his ongoing political campaign that he cares about our security personnel. This cannot be true.
